Homemade Pumpkin Waffles
Looking for a way to enjoy everything pumpkin? You should make pumpkin waffles. I took my crispy waffle recipe and modified it to include pumpkin. Now you can enjoy this family favorite.
Read the recipe (and tips) below to make your own waffles.
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cups milk
1 stick melted butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoon vanilla
How to Make Waffles
Heat up your waffle maker.
In a medium size bowl, mix the flour, sugar and baking powder.
Add the egg, milk and vanilla. While mixing the milk will get bubbly. This is ok, you are getting some air into the mix. Mix about 2 minutes.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix.
Pour in the melted butter and mix.
Add the syrup and mix gently until combined and lastly add the pumpkin puree.
Let the waffle batter set for a few minutes to allow the baking powder to bubble and add air into the mix.
Add in enough mix into the waffle maker to make a waffle (my waffle maker takes about 1 1/2 cups)
Cook approximately 3 minutes, until golden brown.
Remove and repeat until all waffles are made.
Serve with butter, maple syrup or a little powder sugar.
Tips for Making Breakfast
- It is important to let the waffle batter sit for a few minutes to let the baking powder to activate.
- Read the directions for your waffle maker on how much batter fills the waffle maker.
- The butter should be melted and no more than warm, when added into the batter.
- We recommend real maple syrup, but you can use your favorite syrup.
- The batter will be a little thicker, that is what you want.
